. benedict's successor faces several challenges both in the u.s. and around the world. seminary enrollment in the u.s. has fallen at a staggering rate also in europe. church attendance is down. the church's center of gravity has moved to africa and the church works through the legacy of widespread cover-up of rape by priests a cover-up that revealed institutional failures. given all this how exactly should we judge pope benedict's brief papacy and what's next for the world's largest and oldest institutions. i have to say, i was raised in the church, i was baptized in the church, my father was a jesuit seminaryian. i think my first question, i want to talk about the resignation itself because what i find fascinating is ratzinger is associated with the liberals, viewed later on as a reactionary. and yet his final act the final act for which he's known is this remarkably modern fit. here's this traditionalist who has done the most modern thing imaginable which is basically to say i'm too old to do the job which seems to me like a very wise common sensical thing but radical given the history.

system. and number four, establish a better process for admitting future workers into the u.s. the four democratic and four republican senators wish to get momentum from the call for immigration reform. they're similar to the principles laid out by the president in the campaign last year. but it highlights deep conflicts between the parties as the specifics of the policy are hashed out. to his part, the president sounded amenable to compromise. >> we've been debating this for a very long time. it's not as if we don't know technically what needs to get done. there will be rigorous debate about many of the details, and every stakeholder should engage in real give and take in the process. but it's important for us to recognize that the foundation for bipartisan action is already in place. >> the operative word there was details because, despite all the headlines of a bipartisan group of senators ripe for comprehensive impression reform, it will come down to the details of the proposal, details that matter a tremendous amount to many people, and it's the details that could prove the legisla

do more harm to u.s. national security interests and that good. does the white house -- any opinion about these drones? >> we believe our relationship with pakistan is essential to fighting terrorism and terrorists. >> "the new york times" reports that vice president biden in these sessions talking about the way forward has pressed specifically for a strategy that elevates the use of unmanned aerial vehicles, drones, and de-emphasizes u.s. combat forces on the ground. can you tell us if that's true? >> i think you can understand why i'm not going to get into internal discussions. >> you can't say one way or the other whether that's true or not? >> i'm not going to get into it. >> now, i understand, robert, why. >> you had to put that last picture up, didn't you? >> we got the guy. i guess i should say in defense of white house press secretaries, they do not make the decision. they're the person who has to get sent out to say what we can and can't talk about. my sense is they don't make the decision about whether you're going to or not going to talk about the drone program. but do yo

hayes. here in the u.s., it is super bowl sunday. last night aid yee wran peterson, back from an acl injury, beat out peyton manning for the nfl's most valuable player award. right now, my story of the week. war and that other thing. thursday's senate confirmation hearing for chuck hagel was an omni directional embarrassing debacle for everyone involved. first there was the senate republican republicans. republican senator after republican senator threw questions at hagel that even by the debate standards of a nominating hearing were the cheapest kind of demagoguery and bullying. >> why do you think that the iranian foreign ministry so strongly supports your nomination to be the secretary of defense? >> to go on al jazeera, a foreign network broadcasting propaganda to nations that are hostile to us and to explicitly agree with the characterization of the united states as the world's bully, i would suggest is not the conduct one would expect of a secretary of defense. >> you continue to fold, i believe, extreme views far to the left of even this administration. >> if you were a visito

for the u.s. hovers just above 56%. around 55.7%. voluntary universal pre-k had broad support. georgia providing free pre-school for any 4-year-old whose parents want it. with the alabama's governor calling for a 16% increase in the budget it seems like rare example of good policy that could conceivably maybe find something like bipartisan support. back to the table dedrick muhammad, diane shotzenbach, associate professor of human development in social policy at northwestern university. great to have you all here. >> thanks for having us universal pre-k, walk us through the research here. this has been -- i made a joke the other day it is like -- almost like the joke about worthwhile initiative. it is like a liberal cliche that obviously this is a good idea and -- research just seems to grow and grow and grow. suggesting. what are the -- what are the below the headlines of the research that people -- folks may not know. >> i want to start by saying they are not -- not many areas where you see this level of agreement among -- people ranging from jim heckman to al krueger, ben bernanke,

the court is at its outcome more or less hinges on the u.s. supreme court. five justices deciding whether or not to strike down and reauthorized four times by massive overwhelming parties of congress and presidents of -- well, only republican presidents. because of whether the court decides the south is no longer racist. it's great to have you all here. i think this case, we've covered a bit on the network. but i think you cannot overstate the importance of the case. it's probably one of the biggest cases the court has had in a long time. and bishop, i want to begin with you. thank you for traveling up here in new york from shelby county, alabama. one of my best friends lives in alabama. i love the state of alabama. i want to go to you first. because the basic argument here when you clear away the constitutional arguments being made, the legal arguments, part of what's so strange about the case is it's going to come down to a determination of a basic sociological fact which is how imbedded is racism in areas that are covered? how much is this law still justified by the fact that there is
